I think it’s pretty clear this blog has become defunct. It’s been more than three months since I’ve posted, and there aren’t any posts in the works. I’ve been thinking about what this blog is/was, why I had it and why it hasn’t kept on going. Basically it comes down to this: Ben in Japan came from my wanting to document all the crazy stuff I saw and did in Japan, and so I always had a lot to write about. I really loved writing that blog and taking those pictures, and so naturally when I came back home to Brooklyn, I wanted to keep that going. I did for a little bit, but from the very beginning, I never really knew what to write when I wasn’t going on vacations or having other adventures. I kept taking pictures, but they didn’t have long and involved stories with them, and I felt silly posting pictures of my friends and I hanging out on my blog. I would wait for “significant” events, and when those didn’t come I wouldn’t post. I didn’t like that, because I like posting photos, so I switched over to Flickr.
I’ve really enjoyed posting to Flickr recently, and it is updated very often. For now, that will be where all my stuff goes.
Interestingly, just as I’ve given up on my life being exciting and blog-worthy, I’m about to embark on a potentially exciting and interesting life adventure. We’ll see how it goes, but I could see myself starting up a new blog in the near future. Stay tuned. For now, keep checking http://www.flickr.com/photos/benduchac/ - I’ll be posting, and looking for comments.
